VISIONARY.
I sit nnd dream
About a scheme
To put me to tho good.
When I awake
I have to take
The saw nnd hustle wood.
Oh. my; oh, me!
I wish that we
Could syndicate our dreams,
And then perhaps
We luckless chaps
Would sail on golden streams
Without a doubt
We'd put to rout
Hard times or make them rare.
With joy and mirth
Clear off the earth
We'd drive dull, crk1ns care.
